What a nice cozy place to get a fantastic choc-raz cheese cake. We also enjoyed the carrot cake. Seating available inside and outside. Enjoyed the stop while walking around town waiting for the local grasshoppers baseball game to start.

My cousin & I was wandering around Greensboro downtown & I've finally found this place! We went inside to check it out; she ordered the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake & it was very smooth & creamy. I forgot what I ordered, but it was like a bar- it had chocolate chip & coconut & it was very tasty, sweet, and chewy.... More

This is an institution in Greensboro. I picked it up with a friend one night and we loved every bite of it. If you want a desert that is delicious - go to Cheesecakes by Alex! Keep cash and consider having their coffee too. Perfect late night desert on a cold night

I have been here numerous times over the years and I am extremely satisfied every time. The choices make it very difficult to try just one slice. Skip dessert at dinner and come here instead!

We stopped two different nights for dessert at Cheesecakes by Alex. I agree that it is a charming place and different cheesecake selections each time. We sat outside and watch the pedestrian traffic in downtown Greensboro. I'm not sure the cheesecake beats the Cheesecake Factory but the staff was friendly and plenty of selections. I would visit again on the... More

Cheesecake's by Alex is a fantastic local dessert restaurant with a charm unique to Greensboro. The staff is pleasant, though not overly friendly. The dining area is small, but the outdoor patio is lovely in the summertime. We had a fun time sitting outside watching the Greensboro nightlife on a Friday night. It can get pretty full during the summer... More

On my first visit to Cheesecakes by Alex I decided to go with the plain NY cheesecake...start off with the basics. What a treat! I was surprised at how small the space was but I went at an "off" time so it was not too hard to see the display case. So many tempting choices !!! I was delighted at... More

Really, you can never go wrong with a slice of cheesecake from here! It's a great little spot with the best cheesecakes in town. Every flavor is a treat! The staff are friendly & helpful, and get people through the line quickly & efficiently. The seating areas are great, I prefer outside & the chance to people watch!

After a great meal at Crafted my friends and I were on the hunt for dessert. Our server recommended this spot. She was right. My plain NY style cheesecake was outstanding and the orange creamsicle cupcake I took home for the next morning was a bit of sweet heaven with a cup of coffee. Greensboro may end up on my... More
